Storytelling With December Daily® | Registration Now Open

What stories will you tell this December?

I'm excited to introduce you to my newest online class, and my first focusing on storytelling in December. 

Registration is now open for Storytelling with December Daily® - a workshop designed to get you in the mood for documenting your December, one story per day.

Here's a look at what I'll be covering each week for four weeks starting November 3rd:

Week One | A look back at all eight of my past December Daily® albums with individual video walk-throughs. The take-away from this lesson is the opportunity to learn from the past and reflect on what's worked and what's not worked to create a plan for this year.

Week Two | Process exploration. Setting expectations and setting yourself up for success by establishing a storytelling mindset.

Week Three | Specific storytelling ideas, encouragement and inspiration, along with photo ideas to spark additional stories.

Week Four | Techniques for including stories in your album including digital, hybrid, interactive, etc. Essentially, once you've established your stories how do you include them in your album? 

The classroom will remain open and act as a supportive community throughout the month of December and beyond as you work to complete your album.

A couple things to note:

  • This is not a step-by-step workshop for setting up your foundation pages. I will be sharing my process for creating my foundation pages, as well as sharing each completed day, on my blog as I have done in past years.
  • I am aware that not everyone has children at home and will be keeping that in mind as I present the content within the class. Please remember that I do have children at home and it does influence the types of stories that I include at this time in my life. I also spend parts of December on my own and include those stories as well.
  • For the last eight years I've shared all my December Daily® pages and process on my blog. Content included in this workshop will come from my past experiences (meaning I am not creating new pages for this workshop and will be using my past albums as inspiration and teaching tools, although some examples will reference my plans for my 2015 album). 

Registration for this 4 week+ workshop is $29.99 and includes a 4x6 December Storytelling Stamp Set (while supplies last and shipped free to you to spark stories in your album this year) and a big digital package that includes PNG and cut files: 

What do you need for this workshop? 

  • A willingness to look back & ahead
  • Enthusiasm for the story-aspect of this project
  • You don't need a specific December Daily® kit for this workshop but I will be referring to my 2015 main kit when looking ahead to stories I plan to include this year

I hope you'll join me for this exploration of December storytelling ideas, inspiration and techniques.

      It's late here in Australia so I'm heading to bed, I just hope in the morning all the stamps aren't sold out, I'm too scared to buy now in case it won't be refunded :(

      Ali said that she anticipated that there would be enough stamps for everyone, so I'm leaving it in my cart to check on why there is a shipping charge. I don't understand why is should be $7.95 for something that could be sent at a letter rate. When converted, that would make the class $53, which is very steep. $42 is already very expensive.

      Morning guys - refunds will happen today for those of you who signed up in the first hours the class was live. It was a mistake on the backend. Happy Monday!

    I'm getting $7.92 shipping at checkout also. Is there a promo code we should be using?

      It should be fixed now. If you already processed your order the shipping fee will be refunded.

    My order said $4.50 shipping, I figured it would get fixed so I went ahead and placed it anyway. Looking forward to this while realizing honestly I won't be able to keep up until at least December. I have several December Dailies to catch up, and my crazy plan is to get all the photos from each year in piles along the floor in my work area, get embellishments and albums sorted in advance for each one (yes, I have a couple of pristine, unused Dec Daily kits) and kind of mass create. Luckily, I journaled each December day, each year, so the memories are well captured. I have 3 whole weeks off work in December - woo hoo! This will be a gift to myself if I can pull it off, and I think this class will keep the ideas flowing.

      I'm super excited to get more stories told this December. I always have photos but lack 25 stories. I appreciate you trying to think about those without children. Though I love your stories that are about your kids sometimes I'm stuck on Story ideas for me who is single & have a very small family. regardless I always learn a lot from your classes & Blog. I look forward to looking at what we have done & start thinking about this year. :0)

      @untiedt I have a boyfriend, but otherwise no kids/family, and my extended family is on the opposite coast and not very close so I don't really see them for the holidays. I love Christmas and the idea of December Daily and I'm hoping it will make what will otherwise be a not so festive time a lot more festive. I am looking forward to seeing what others do/discuss in the class that are in similar situations. Can't wait!

      You can do it @scrappinmyheartout!!! I finished the second half of 2013 and 2014 start to finish in a ridiculous long Saturday of scrapping :)

    I placed my order too. I have already started a conversation with Studio Calico. I don't want to miss out on the stamp set.

      Morning - wondering if that was because you put it in your cart before they had fixed the glitch? No worries - you will be refunded :).

      Yes I see it now has been changed. Thank you and looking forward to it!

    Hi, the link to Ali's previous December Daily Albums may be broken. It redirected me back to December Daily blog home page and not to the Projects - December Daily home page so we can see her previous album galleries.

      Hi - all the images for my December Daily® albums are included in blog posts from past years which is why I linked specifically to the blog posts. You can see selections (meaning not all pages) from past years in a more gallery-style format here: http://aliedwards.com/projects/december-daily

    How long will this class content be available? I don't know that I will be able to start my DD until Jan or Feb, will it still be up then?

      Indefinitely - just like all my classes. Once you sign up you continue to have access.

    Placed my order. Though I tried to complete the order I'd started earlier, it still charged me shipping. Removing the item from the cart and re-adding it removed the shipping and I completed successfully :)
    Love the PNG files and the stamp set! I really am going to have to bite the bullet and load up PSE and get learning ;)
    Really looking forwards to the class and the DD period. I adore my album from last year, and tha was my first "go" - I expect this year will be even better, knowing what a joy it is to have my album! xxx

    I am so happy and excited about this class. Ali's inspiration encourages me to find more things to do with my family and friends in December and to document them. I make a more conscious effort to make the holidays meaningful thanks to her! Thank you so much!

    Just a heads up, Ali, the "Oh What Fun" png file is not working. Everything else is fine.

    Hi Ali, will we get a digital version of the stamp set too?

      That *would* be fantastic, but I don't think Ali has plans to do that this time.

      A digital version of the stamp set has been added to your My Digital Files, along with a set of word art/PDF for note-taking and keeping track of ideas.

    Hi Ali! I LOVE the 6 that you have on the page with Simon. How did you do that?! My youngest (who is now 6) loves playing cards of all kinds....what a cool element!

    Do people already have the png files or whatever digital items we were to get? I didn't get an email with any of that? Do we get it now or when the class starts?

      Never mind- I think I see it in my account but none of the ones that look like cards?

      11/01/2015

      Is there a specific design you are looking for but not seeing? Everything should be included in that package.
